Don't let the name fool you--the goodies at this event are the short plays created by MCC students in the 24 hours prior to the October 21 performance!

The Sixth Act presents an evening of creative fusion at its most immediate. Come to the Forum on Saturday, October 21, at 7 p.m. to watch plays that are crafted over the course of 24 hours by MCC students! The students will meet in the Forum at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 20, to begin the process of creating a series of short plays from nothing. Twenty-four hours later, those plays will be ready for an audience. This is an opportunity to witness raw artistic collaboration and, in addition to being good fun, can provoke conversations about what it means to tell a story.

Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments. The Sixth Act is supported by MCC's Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program.
